Atonement Thoughts

How did Christ atone for His People?
Protestant Theologians debate whether it was in an Equivalent or Exact Sense:
“Not indefinite as to the duration, still…equivalent as to the value on account of the Person suffering.” -Turretin
“Christ “made satisfaction by undergoing the same punishment…they themselves were bound to undergo…essentially the same in weight and pressure, though not in all accident of duration and the like.” -Owen, quoted in “He Died for Me” p. 114.
“He was to suffer what we were to suffer, if not the exact, every way the same, yet the equivalent, that which was sufficient to Christ’s ends” -Thomas Manton, quoted in “He Died for Me” p. 118.
